    Talking Disneyland Nintendo DS?

    i was searching for recent pictures of the wait time board at disneyland to get an idea of the crowds on my next trip when i came across several articles describing a Nintendo DS add-on that gives wait times, maps and atm locations RIGHT ON THE DS! could someone explain this system for me in details and tell me if it is available at the Disneyland Resort?
    Thank you everybody!

    I think that this technology was tested in the parks a few months back. I haven't heard much about it in a long time.

    Re: Disneyland Nintendo DS?

    ok here are some of the links and articles that i found:

    http://www.engadget.com/2008/01/21/d...ve-tour-guide/

    this seemed like the best article i found:

    http://www.dsfanboy.com/2008/01/22/t...sney-ds-guide/

    some more links:

    http://blog.wired.com/games/2008/01/...-disney-g.html

    found one more that (for me) was a real downer-not available til Spring 2009!

    i realize a lot of these articles are for WDW instead of DLR, but all the rumors around this sorta older news (january) overlap.

    I read those articles, and this looks really cool. Though, I hate to read that so far they only plan to let people rent units. I mean, I already own a DS lite and would gladly buy the software if they let me.

    They should also make a free app for the iphone if they can. There's actually something already like that too.

    ^^^^^^^^
    couldn't agree more. me, my sister, and cousins have enough ds lites for our whole family on every trip, it would save a lot of money on renting one for each member. but maybe they are renting them out to have control over how many people have access to the app. i mean, if everybody with a ds was able to check ride wait times whenever they wanted to, it would turn into chaos! a 30 minute wait for splash mountain could turn into a 2 hour wait in a second!

    DS has the download option so why not give the option at a park to download the software to get wait times. A scrollable map and maybe some info about the section you're in would be cool too. No need for a GPS enabled DS since the park has several landmarks to recognize where you are on the map.
    Everybody's got a laughin' place-
    trouble is most folks won't take the time to go look for it.

    Re: Disneyland Nintendo DS?

    This sounds like a great idea and to me it would be one of those things that would not ever end up being well known to everyone visiting the parks (like the many people who still dont know what fastpass is). I wish they would have a downloadable version for us (obviously to purchase) instead of rent, but I understand why they wouldnt want too many people having one at once.
    i mean, if everybody with a ds was able to check ride wait times whenever they wanted to, it would turn into chaos! a 30 minute wait for splash mountain could turn into a 2 hour wait in a second!
    i could definitely see this being a problem if the use of the DS became incredibly popular. But b/c I myself have a DS too, I still wish they would make it widely available.

    It would be awesome if u can communicate with other ds owners in ur family via the DS's Microphone. Like so u wont get lost.

    I went to Safeco Field the home of the Seattle Mariners last weekend. Their majority owner is the Nintendo Corp. If you bring your Nintendo DS they have 2 download spots in the stadium. After you download you have access to several statistics, starting lineups, live video and replays, etc. Disney should set up something like that with queue times, parade times, anything that would be helpful.

    i live right by safeco!
    me and some buddies should ride the train down there and take the nintendos to a game one day. if it turns out to be a pretty crummy game- atleast we'll have animal crossings!

    The website www.twisney.com lets you communicate via your cell phone. It also allows people to post wait times for rides.
